&/or worms

Lovely to see so many Buzzards about nowadays, isn't it? This looked like a good spot to find a nice series of common earthworms which - rather surprisingly - are a staple item in the diet of the Buzzard.

Earthworms

Interestingly enough, I'm doing an earthworm survey near the same spot this afternoon, so I'll be sure to take some photos! This was the closest I've ever been to a wild bird of prey, so I felt very privileged :)
